Ronaldo, Messi, Iniesta nominated for 2012 UEFA best player award

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta have been shortlisted for the 2011/12 UEFA Best Player award.

The three Spain-based players came top of a poll of 53 journalists from UEFA's member associations. Andrea Pirlo of Juventus finished fourth, while Barcelona's Xavi came in fifth.

Messi won the award last year and had a prolific 2011-12 season, scoring 50 league goals. He was also top scorer in the Champions League for the fourth successive season with a record 14 goals.

Iniesta enjoyed another strong season at club and international level. He helped Spain defend its European Championship title at the European Championship, where he was voted player of the tournament.

Ronaldo scored 46 league goals for Real Madrid as it won its first La Liga title in four years. He also scored three times as Portugal captain at Euro 2012.

The winner will be announced on Aug. 30.

Iniesta had a great year leading Spain and Barca. No doubting that Ronaldo has also been exceptional the past few years and Messi is the best player in the world.....

Who do you think will win UEFA best player award this year?
